Vanderson replies to Tait, the match is rampant

HALFTIME AT ROAZHON PARK!

It’s halftime! Rennes and Monaco go into the break 1-1! Having started well with an early header from Tait, the Bretons were leveled by a fine strike from Vanderson. The game started strong before falling in the last twenty minutes of that first half.

Yellow card for Vanderson

First yellow card of the game and Vanderson comes in to punch Tait! He warms up with a Rennes player and takes a yellow card!

Monaco pushes back

New free kick for Benjamin Bourigeaud and he puts it in the penalty area! It is returned by the Monegasque Defense!

There are no more options

Rennes corner well received by Hamari Traoré! Bourigeaud shoots, but he finds no one in the box.

The Monegasque defense put to the test

Rennes chained the crosses and forced Badiashile and Disasi to give many clearances in the disaster!

Both teams have calmed down

There’s suddenly a lot less rhythm in this encounter! Let’s spin the ball a little more!

Bourigeaud finds no one

Free kick for Rennes at the entrance to the penalty area and Bourigeaud tries to put it in the penalty area but Nubel calmly catches the ball.

Terrier misses his shot!

Disasi misses his intervention in front of Terrier, who takes advantage of a rebound to attempt a lob, but misses the attempt!

VAAAANDERSON’S COMPENSATION!

But what a game, two goals in 12 minutes! What an opening from Golovin putting Vanderson into orbit with a 100+ yard pass! The Brazilian narrowly fools Alemdar!

Rennes is second at the moment

Thanks to this result, Rennes overtakes Marseille to become provisional runners-up to PSG!

VOLLAND MISSES HIS DIVE!

Started well by Fofana, Volland will fight his duel with Alemdar and opts for the little dive! It’s too strong, too bad for the ASM!

Traore’s strike!

Every time Rennes projects forward, it ends in a strike! Hamari Traoré tries very far and it’s close!

OPEN THE SCORE! WHAT A GAME START!

Already a goal from Rennes after 3 minutes of play! Bourigeaud discards Traoré playing a one-two with Laborde! The cross to the penalty spot for Flavien Tait, who puts his head down!

First chance for Monaco!

Good job by Vanderson, who finds Ben Yedder in the penalty area and deflects the striker for Volland. The German defies three defenders and perfectly relocates Golovin, who crosses his shot too far!

CLIMB FOR RENNES-MONACO!

Here we go with Rennes-Monaco, the first game of Ligue 1 matchday 32! The race for the Champions League will be held tonight!

Rennes is on an impressive winning streak

The Bretons have won 6 of their last 7 Ligue 1 games (draw 1) while scoring 24 goals (3.4 per game). Stade Rennais is the best team in L1 in the last 7 days with 19 points, 6 more than any other team.

The Rennes team

Alemdar – Traore, Omari, Santamaria, Meling – Bourigeaud, Martin, Majer, Tait – Terrier, Laborde

The Monegasque composition

noodles Aguilar, Disasi, Badiashile, Henrique; Vanderson, Tchouameni, Fofana, Golovin; Ben Yedder, Volland

Clement doesn’t feel in the hot seat

The Monaco coach has just won 3 times in LaLiga but he knows his unstable position. Monaco are 6th in Ligue 1, a long way from their target of a podium finish. However, the Monegasque coach does not see himself in danger before the shock against Rennes.

Ben Yedder, Terrier, Laborde, scorers duel

3 of the 4 top scorers in the championship face off tonight: Wissam Ben Yedder (18 goals), Martin Terrier (18) and Gaëtan Laborde (14). These three are on the heels of Kylian Mbappé, 20 goals this season in L1.

Monaco is doing well against the league leaders

Monaco have won their last 3 Ligue 1 games against teams that started the day on the podium (3-0 vs Paris on March 20, 1-0 vs Marseille on March 6 and 2-1 vs… Rennes in the first leg on December 22), as many as in the 9 previous matches of this type (2 draws, 4 defeats).

Kick-off at 9 p.m.

Crucial meeting this Friday at Roazhon Park. Rennes, 3rd, hosts Monaco, 6th. The Bretons can return to OM in the event of victory while they await Sunday’s classic. Monaco, for its part, can temporarily climb to 4th place in the championship. But in the event of a defeat, the Monegasques will undoubtedly say goodbye to the Champions League.
